The House That SHE Built Story
The House That SHE Built was created by the Utah PWB with a team of real women who came together from around the country to build a one-of-a-kind home in Saratoga, Utah. It sparked a movement and inspired a book that helps educates young readers about all the people and skills that go into building a home.

With women constituting less than 3% of the onsite workforce in housing, one of the key goals of this all-female built home was to highlight and utilize skilled tradeswomen and women owned companies for all stages of the project. As momentum and national interest grew, women from all over the country traveled to contribute.

Join us for a very special Professional Women in Building bruncheon and hear the inspiring stories from four women who helped make this ambitious 3,200 SQ FT home project a reality. Mollie Elkman, author of the best-selling children’s book, The House that She Built will share her experience and how the program has expanded into other opportunities. Their grit, determination, and resilience underscores what so many of us passionately know – homebuilding is a place for all women. This is their story and it’s powerful.

Proceeds for The House That She Built support workforce development initiatives in the homebuilding industry

Network with national industry leaders! Join PWB for a champagne brunch to network and explore the future of women in the building industry and how to be empowered in this new decade and beyond!
